UMID's M1 mbook MID has fallen of the radar over the past few months, having made plenty of headlines and even clinched the title of "best UMPC available" from at least one reviewer.  Over at UMPC Portal they've been talking with the Korean company, who apparently are yet to reach quantity shipping due to LCD shortages; that milestone should be met in September this year, with both white and black models produced in bulk.  They've also dropped a few hints about upcoming model refreshes.
